Earlier, I didn't list everything I bought, just the stuff I was most happy with. Some things...there just isn't much to say about them; or so I thought.
It's not news to me one is supposed to serve food on a white dish so the dish does not detract or compete with the beauty of the food. But, I didn't have any white dishes and it's hard to justify such a purchase when one already has 4 full sets of dishes (2 that never get used). I guess I forgot about that when I was at that yard sale. I saw 3 boxes of white dishes and just bought them. I didn't really even look at them. Just saw they were white and that was enough. I was so excited about them I couldn't even be bothered to bring them from the car and into the house for awhile. When I finally got around to that and unpacked them, I had to sit down. No way did these people know what they just sold me.
For $10, I got all of this:
They are obviously a collection someone had going (there are various markings on the bottoms).
So ummm...yeah...a gazillion pieces of vintage ironstone for $10. They've obviously been used as there are some chips and whatnot, but many pieces (at least half) are in good condition.
